What information overload actually is
2. Leaving meaning behind
Just as every society in history has used examples, stories and metaphors to communicate higher-level ideas, so professors use a series of secondary points, examples and demonstrations to make the content come alive for the learner. It’s what they do best.
Unfortunately, our typical way of dealing with lots of information is to try and get down ‘the facts’; those bullet points we think will best help us understand and remember the content.
As a result, students typically leave the examples and analogies behind, meaning all that rich detail and fuel for the imagination is lost. So, though you’ll probably get the surface-level points, they might not be much help without a key to understanding them later.
